The Needles of Zhi and Wu (Acupuncture Needle)



Description:



A set of acupuncture needles ordinary in every way except that they are of a green colour as if made of jade, rumoured to be so potent in healing properties that even revival of the dead are achievable.



The Origin:



These needles are the tools of trade of Bian Que, the miracle doctor of the Era of Spring and Fall. It was rumoured that Bian Que is in fact the offspring of the Goddess of Mercy and is a divine entity himself. According to such sources, these needles have developed direct healing qualities themselves as a result of prolonged contact with Bian Que with his godly presence pervading this set of tools.  


Current whereabouts:



Unknown- Immediately following the end of the Era of Spring and Fall comes the Period of the Warring States, a time of turmoil accompanied by many refugees of wars fleeing the Dragon Empire for more peaceful outlying regions. It was speculated that Bian Que and his family might have been among such refugees.



Note: This is historical fiction since it is genuinely recorded in Chinese history that there was a miracle working doctor known as Bian Que active during what is known as the Spring and Autumn and the Warring States Period.

This is supposed to be a Wiki to the extent I thought this will be a fun submission that everyone can contribute items towards if they want to so putting it as a Wiki is just a way of throwing the sub 'open' so to speak. Since you are able to put in that two lines into the sub, it seems that the 'anyone can edit and have it appear as 1 seamless sub' part does work.

As to why this is currently in 'scroll' format, maybe it's because Muro and I used the 'add an idea' button to add our items (actually I couldn't remember what I did exactly but seeing the "user submitted ideas(2)" header I speculated what's what we did)?

Personally I actually thought the 'scroll' format suits this submission more since it's gonna be a list of items (with short descriptions) and if the format is just one big sub without line breaks it's going to be very hard on the eyes.

The Comb of Banafrit


Description:
A finely crafted comb made of a single palm-sized seashell, overlaid with specks of coloured stones. Small cracks along the teeth provide signs of frequent usage.


The Origin:


This item was commissioned by King Amenemhat and presented to his beloved Queen, Banafrit, as a birthday gift. According to folklore, Queen Banafrit has a particularly lustrous mane of hair that King Amenemhat lovingly brushes for her every morning, with this particular comb.

Current whereabouts:
Buried with Queen Banafrit in the royal tomb

The Goblet of Victory


Description:
One of the cursed items recorded in the Annuals of History and Lost Artefacts, described as being surrounded by a dark forbidding aura. In appearance, this is a goblet shaped much like a Viking helmet, with two horns protruding out from the sides. Each of these horns carries a sheath made of silver.


The Origin:


Originally the heirloom of the royal line of Hampstead, this goblet was taken as one of the spoils of war by King Knut I of Stormhenge. This is also the infamous goblet that King Knut IX choked to death on while drinking a toast of celebration over victory at the Campaign of Roxwell.

Current whereabouts:
Unknown- One tale has it that the goblet vanished mysteriously after King Knut IX’s death. Another source is certain that the goblet is now in safe-keeping in the Temple of Zorn, the All Wise and Merciful. There are also periodic rumours of it being seen in all places around the world.

I agree with previous comments on this sub being sort of inconsistent in terms of originality and length of the different god entities. However, I did get a sense of this sub being useful for portraying the different cultures even before I read the dialogue b/w Echo and the author. So my vote is on the higher end. Go to Comment
Alucardian Psionovariates
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Any)
Moonlake's comment on 2013-05-13 09:03 PM
A fairly original concept, to interpret vampires in terms of psionics. Write up is also solid. One nitpick with it, however, is that halfway thru the "What is a Psionovariate?" section (having forgotten the title) I really wondered abt why the exclusive focus on the Alucardian Psionovariates as I was expeceting a brief description of each Psionovariate type. Maybe change the section heading or regroup content in the opening paragraph and the What is a Psionovariate section (I mean, currently it just seems a bit confusing to me because the starting paragraphs talk abt Alucardian Psionovariates specifically. Then the "What is a...?" section starts from a general overview on the Psionvariates and then w/o warning it goes back to focusing specifically on the Alucardians.) Go to Comment

Moonlake's comment on 2010-10-28 09:19 PM


Through consultation with Clergyman 2, the PCs had narrowed down the list of suspects to 3 possible parties:



1. The Order of Wisdom from the Earth which have a long rivalry with the Church over followers and conflicting theologies. It was speculated that the theft of the artifact might be an attempt to discredit the faith of the Heavenly Sight. The rumors currently flowing around town on the church angering their own deity and the artifact having been taken back as punishment seem to support this theory.



2. The "Unfaithful One" who was banished and just before his banishment was caught trying to taint the artifact with his unholy stain. While more protection had been put in around the artifact after the attempt, the "Unfaithful One" has his own unholy powers and his familiarity with the church would give him a reasonable chance of success in stealing away the artifact.



3. An overzealous patron of the Church who had expressed his desire to house the artifact in his own mansion in 'proper splendour'. It was clear that he had both the resources and the possible motivation for arranging for the artifact to be stolen.

The underlying idea is solid and logical. The overall submission is also quite likeable as a whole. A good first post.

The Seir and the death of the Old World
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Any)
Moonlake's comment on 2011-02-10 10:05 PM


I read this purely as a creation myth without any knowledge of the Locastus setting and liked the way  the idea was executed, esp. the first part on the myth of the Grey Lady and the Seir ( I agree with Silveressa's point on the sci-fi terms although personally I just glossed over their actual meaning and interpreted them as being part of the description for a titanic battle with devastating impacts on the world so I didn't deduct any points for this aspect).



Overall, however, I did think this seems like a sub that has enough content to be labelled complete (and is accompanied with good quality write-up) but still lacks something  to reach its full potential. In particular, I think the sub would have benefited if you could insinuate more on the culture of the Seir within the creation myth so that they are more vivid as a people. I think that would also address Silveressa's comment on this currently doesn't quite fit into the category of Lifeforms.

77. New way to throw off pursuits- join a travelling circus/entertainment caravan as a trainer of crocs

78. Along the same line as 77, this is an effective way to join a travelling circus/entertainment caravan which you might need to get close for some purpose (eg. murder investigation, need to get close to a particular member to retrieve sth or get info etc.)

79. Hire your croc out as a mount for a river-side cruise when you need money Go to Comment
